If it's done correctly, stone should end up being easier to maintain because of the lack of organic matter, If you excavate out a foot and then put in the stone, I find that there will be way less weeds than with mulch or straw... As for re-freshing it, I find that hitting them with the power washer and just agitating them a bit works... That being said, Mulch or Straw is for sure cheaper than stone, especially the stuff in the photo above... That stuff is about 40/ton retail where I am at in Upstate New York... But, if you were to ask me my favorite? I like a nice jet black mulch... Looks so good against a white or lighter colored house with lots of evergreen type landscaping... Just my 2
